The Organisation

The Australian Conservation Foundation is Australia’s national environment organisation – over half a million people to create a safe, sustainable and prosperous future.

A handful of people formed ACF 50 years ago when mining first threatened the Great Barrier Reef. Now the ACF community has grown into a powerful force for a better world.

We bring together people from community, government and business. Our community advocates against pollution and destruction, and for our living world. We hold decision makers to account.

We champion big ideas, and find common ground with communities, stakeholders and industries across the country.

People power our campaigns. We are proudly independent, non-partisan and funded by donations from our community.

The Role

The Campaigns directorate is responsible for advocacy to deliver transformative environmental policy and practice by decision makers in government and business.

ACF’s Climate and Energy campaign team is part of the Campaigns directorate and holds responsibility for the development and execution of campaigns to tackle climate change including:

  • Reduction of greenhouse pollution;
  • Increased uptake of renewable energy; and
  • Enabling just transitions for coal dependent workers and communities.

The Climate Change campaign team makes use of a full suite of campaign tools including engaging our supporters, community organising, media and communications, policy development and analysis, direct political advocacy, fundraising and collaborations with other organisations.

The work of the Climate Change campaign team involves close collaboration with the other Campaigns directorate areas and ACF’s Engagement and Fundraising directorates.

The Community Campaigner - Central Queensland will work closely with the Program Manager and the Queensland Climate and Energy Campaigner to develop and deploy an integrated work program for community and stakeholder engagement, organising and tactical delivery to advance recognition and support just transitions in central Queensland.

Your Skills

The Community Campaigner - Central Queensland will work in one of Australia’s three major coal regions to prosecute the case for a community led just transition from coal to clean energy.

Internally the position reports to the Climate & Energy Program Manager and will work closely with our Brisbane-based Climate Campaigner and members of the Organising Team.

Externally, this position will identify, build and strengthen relationships with local environmental, civil society and community groups, union branches, local government, the renewables and health sectors to help coordinate and amplify a community led dialogue about transition from coal and clean energy. The position would also connect and work cooperatively with other coal dependent communities in the Hunter and Latrobe valleys facing similar challenges.

If this is you, we want to hear from you! Don’t miss this exciting opportunity.
